Topic: Hearing Loss and Hearing Aids in the Changing Landscape of OTC Hearing Healthcare. 


The presentation will focus on Audiology’s most typical patient, namely an adult over the age of 50 with a primary complaint of difficulty understanding speech, especially in background noise, and what can be expected when this patient steps into the vast and rapidly changing landscape of hearing aids, hearing healthcare providers, and assistive technology. The presentation will allow time for full discussion and exploration of topics that most interest the audience.
